The fourth Boofy...

...Goes to Joey Porter, who is an idiot.

Referring to an overturned interception call that went in Indy's favor yesterday, Porter said
"I know they wanted Indy to win this game; the whole world loves Peyton Manning," Porter said. "But come on, man, don't take the game away from us like that."
Come on you darn ref. Don't go back and look at replay for all the fans at home and in the stadium to see and make a decision based on evidence you've seen on that video, risking your credibility as an official, in order to give the ball back to Indy. I can just imagine the conversation that had to take place between Tagliabue and the referee. "If there's a questionable interception call that gets challenged, call it in Indy's favor. I know, you might look like an idiot, but the whole world wants Peyton to win this game. Yeah, I know. But who cares what Joey Porter says. He'll be angry even if they win."

Also, "the world" loves Peyton Manning? Even some guy in India who's never heard of football?

Later he said,
"The world wanted Indy to win so bad, they were going to do whatever they had to do, man," Porter claimed. "It was like the 9-1-1 year, when they wanted the [New England] Patriots to win it for the world ... At a point, I didn't think the refs were going to let us get out of here with a victory."
I like five things about this paragragh. 1) He says "refs," when there's only one on the field. 2) He says nine. one. one. which is really, really dumb. 3) He blames the 2002 championship game loss on "they," who I can only think is the NFL, and their desire to make people feel good after a national tragedy. It's funny then, that the NFL couldn't successfully win this game for Indy. 4) He says "the world" again when, really, Tony Blair and my Grandma don't give a shit. 5) Did "they" or "the refs" fumble the football at the goalline for Pittsburgh? Because that's kind of why you were in a position to lose the football game.

I feel so bad that it's taken me this long to discover the nonsensical ramblings of Joey Porter.

My favorite Porter quote was, to paraphrase, "The Colts just try to make you think on defense, and that's just not cool. I mean, you want me to think? Just play football! I don't want to have to think!"
